Democrats’ Gambling Their 2020 Prospects On Lurching Leftward

Immediately following the 2016 elections liberals coalesced around two competing positions about how to survive and thrive in a Trump-led Washington. Some argued that the path to power was to “reject the siren calls of the left” and move back to the center. As Mark Penn and Andrew Stein argued in the New York Times,…

Democrats Working to Purge the Few Ties They Have to the Working Class

It’s impossible to imagine now, but it wasn’t that long ago that West Virginia was a deep-blue Democratic stronghold. Out of the 121 terms for statewide office that have been regularly elected since 1932, only seven were lost by Democrats, and three of those seven were won by the same person, Republican Arch A.

Republicans’ Medicaid Reforms Are Just What the Doctor Ordered

Obamacare is in jeopardy and Democrats know it. And while they don’t necessarily want to own the inevitable collapse of the individual market that Obamacare put into motion, neither do they want to admit that it took electing a GOP-led Senate to fix it. So it’s not surprising that Democrats are pulling out the stops…

Are Democrats Pro-Tax Reform? Depends on the Year

There is a phenomenon in physics whereby the mere act of observing an event changes the outcome. This is perhaps most pronounced in the debate over whether light was composed of particles, which travel in a straight line, or waves, which travel in undulating ripples. Experiments have proven that when electrons are not observed, they…

Democrats Aren’t Just Attacking Gorsuch, They’re Attacking the Rule of Law

Judge Neil Gorsuch deserves better than the treatment he received at the hands of Democrats in this week’s confirmation hearings. More importantly, the rule of law—a principle so dear to this country—deserves better. Democrats, who are now coalescing under the mantle of The Resistance, are doing their level best to ignite their base by opposing…

Democrats Alienating the Voters They Need to Win in 2018

Democrats’ path to a Senate majority is incredibly difficult and politically perilous. The 2018 map is unforgiving, offering no shortcuts and leaving no room for wrong-turns. And yet rather than identify where their party went off the tracks in 2016, Democrats seem to be going out of their way alienate would-be supporters. Republicans currently have…

Democrats Just Sabotaged Their Best Hope for 2020

Well that was quick. Once the do-no-wrong darling of Democrats, and the inevitable front-runner for the party’s 2020 presidential ticket, Sen. Elizabeth Warren suddenly finds herself being minimized by key party leadership. So how did the progressive lion get muzzled? Simple. A poll. Earlier this week, a Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 43 percent of…

Election Be Damned, Democrats’ Continue to Lurch Leftward

The Kugler-Ross model, also known as the five stages of grief, suggests that there is a standardized series of emotions experienced by terminally ill patients. It consists of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. It seemed an apt model for Democrats to follow after their Election Day drubbing at the hands of Donald Trump and…

Will the Real Hillary Clinton Please Stand Up

Hillary Clinton recently announced her presence on Snapchat with a photograph of herself with the expression “Yaaas, Hllary!” splayed across it. It was a quintessential Clinton social media post – a desperate stab by her team to “speak to” millennials by sounding absolutely nothing like the candidate herself. I daresay Clinton is more likely to…

Sorry Democrats, Fixing the College Tuition Crisis Requires More Than Subsidies

Young adults are fast becoming a political force to be reckoned with. If you had questions about our growing clout just watch the presidential candidates trip over themselves to try and solve the student loan conundrum.
